It is our fresh, hip style, energetic and funky approach that brings this talented group into today's contemporary realm. We pride ourselves as being extremely flexible and organized with a dedicated attention to detail. The ultimate professionals both on and off stage.

On the One is a cover band based in Tulum, México on the Riviera Maya. We play mostly weddings and large events, although from time to time we play in local bars and restaurants.
The minimum number of musicians we play with is nine; to do justice to our song list we need every one of those musicians! We have a lead singer and backup singer; lead guitar and rhythm guitar; bass guitar; drums; trombone and saxophone, and keyboards. We can add a trumpet and second backup singer if you´d like. Our lead singer speaks both english and spanish and can serve as emcee. Our musicians come from Chile, Mexico, Italy, Cuba and Hawaii.
We play a minimum of 2 sets, and usually play 3 or 4. Each set lasts 50 minutes and we take a 10 minute break in between; the final set lasts a full hour.
All our prices include the costs of transportation (as far as Playa del Carmen, any farther would have an added cost) and sound equipment for the entire band. We use the best digital mixers and best sound equipment available, for the best sound possible. The price also includes LED party lighting and robotic lights on trusses. We bring the whole party with us! You can also add on a dance floor, stage for the band, and other decoration or lighting like a disco ball or a smoke machine.
We have a list of over 300 songs in our repertoire. We ask that you provide us your list at least one month prior to the event date. If you would like us to play any songs that are not on our list, we will learn them, we just ask that your number of new songs not exceed 3 for each month from the time you send us the list until the event date. (For example, if you give us the list 4 months prior to the event date, please keep the list to 12 songs or less.) You choose the songs we will play, and we will put them into a set list that flows well; we are open to any changes or suggestions you have concerning the flow of the music!
On the One is fully self sufficient providing your Riviera Maya event with a quality state of the art PA system and professional lighting rig. All logistics for musicians and musical equipment is covered as well. The band can also out source staging, dance floors and PA systems to suite festival type stages if required. Pre-mixed music can be played before between and after his live sets and the option of both formal and informal stage wear is offered.
I was married at Ziggy Beach in June 2014 and had the band perform during our reception. My husband and I, along with all of our guests were blown away by their sound. The energy that they brought to the party was palpable — getting every single person on their feet for 6 hours straight! What’s truly amazing is their ability to perform practically every style of music, with our set list ranging from Hava Nagila (BLEW IT OUT THE WATER!) to Al Green to Amy Winehouse to RUN DMC. We went back and forth between just having a DJ versus a live band, unsure if we should bite the bullet and hire a band we’d never heard perform. I am so happy we made the decision we did! There is nothing like a live performance to get every guest on the dance floor celebrating! Thank you, On the One — our wedding reception was a dance party that no one will forget!
We just wanted to say thank you so much for performing at our wedding. The music was so good! We really really appreciate all of your hard work in making it so special for us by learning those songs that we love the most. All your hard work and that of the band really paid off and we received so many comments from our guests about how excellent you all were!

Most weddings require the services of both a live band and a DJ. Often there is a lengthy change-over between these two acts, changing all light and sound gear, resulting in a loss of momentum in the party atmosphere. To ensure that the nights entertainment flows with no intervals, the band also provides the option for a high quality DJ service to follow on from the band, that is sure to keep the party going!!
